Dynamic Cartography: Body, Architecture, and Performative Space - Routledge Advances in Theatre & Performance Studies (Hardback)Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez (author)
- Coming soon
Dynamic Cartography analyses the works of Rudolf Laban, Lawrence Halprin, Anne Bogart, Adolphe Appia, Cedric Price, Joan Littlewood, and Heilio Oiticica. They are practitioners who have worked on different areas of enquiry from the existing relations between body and space through movement, events or actions but whose work has never been presented from this perspective or in this context. The work and methodologies set up by these practitioners, enable us to develop a practice-based exploration. Some of the experiments of the book -Micro-actions I and II- explore the presence of the body in the space. In Kinetography I and II, Laban's dance notation system - Kinetography - is used to create these dynamic cartographies. Kinetography III, proposes the analysis of an urban public space, through the transcription of the body movement contained on it. The series Dynamic Cartographies (I, II and III), analyses movement in geometrically controlled spaces, through the Viewpoints techniques, by Anne Bogart. Finally, Wooosh and Trellick Tales present two projects in which performance is applied in order to analyze and understand urban and architectural space.
